"Yummmmm...the only adjustment I made was marinating meat in seasoning overnight. Will add this to weekly menu for sure!!"

"It's a very good recipe. I didn't have onion so I added onion soup mix to the gravy and it was pretty good."

"to me this recipe had too much ketchup and didn't really make a gravy. I used cub steak, which worked out fine, but I will be searching for another recipe next time I want to make Salsbury Steak"

"Good Salisbury Steak. If I make it again, I would follow the first reviewer's suggestion to saute the onions before adding to the sauce so they are softer."

"Just made this tonight and my husband loved it. When he said I could make it again, I knew he liked it. I made some slight changes to the recipe. I used 1 lb. of meat, Campbell's beef Consumme instead of water and beef boullion granules, and 8 oz. of sliced fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I prefer the Baby Bella mushrooms. They have a beefy texture and taste great with this recipe. I also sauteed the onions and mushrooms before adding to the sauce. I served with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. YUM!"

"This is the BEST salisbury steak recipe i've ever made, and i've made alot!! I quadrupled the recipe to feed my family of 5, and the only change i made was to add a package of onion soup mix to the meat mixture. Everyone loved it and have already asked me to make it again. I definately plan to!!!"

"This is very good! I wanted to try a new salisbury steak recipe and this looked good and easy. I actually used 1 lb of ground beef and got 4 patties out of this (two smaller ones for the kids and 2 larger ones for my husband and myself). I made this with smashed red potatoes and carrots. I will definitely make this again!"

"I've got a nasty head cold and can't taste a thing, but my husband and my daughter loved this. My husband said, "Don't lose this recipe!" (As if!) I served this with mashed red potatoes and green peas alongside. Although I doubled the recipe, the original proportions would actually serve a family of three just fine as long as you made three beef patties instead of two."
